A plan to construct seven dams in one of mainland Southeast Asia’s last intact forest systems could cause widespread habitat loss and sever important wildlife corridors, activists warn. The Dong Phayayen-Khao Yai (DPKY) Forest Complex is a vast and biodiverse region that spans six provinces in eastern Thailand. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005 for its exceptional biodiversity but is perhaps better known as the home of one of Thailand’s two remaining breeding populations of Indochinese tigers (Panthera tigris corbetti).

Tigers caught on camera lounging in a Jacuzzi-sized watering hole; Elizabeth Claire-Alberts; MongaBay

Conservationists set up two camera traps near a watering hole in a Thai forest — and then they waited. The first animal to step in front of the lens was a male tiger (Panthera tigris), who took a dip in the natural pool before sauntering off. Not long after that, a type of wild cattle called a banteng (Bos javanicus) briefly stepped into view before getting spooked and sprinting away.
